UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide Commends the Work of the C4JR in Iraq

December 10, 2020

UN Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide Ms. Alice Wairimu Nderitu in her keynote speech delivered on December 9th 2020 at the UN event to mark the International Day to Commemorate the Victims of Genocide highlighted the work of a coalition of Iraqi civil society organizations advocating for accountability and reparations for victims of Da’esh/ISIL 

UN Special Adviser said that: 

The voices and courage of victims and their representatives in calling for justice have been a fundamental piece for the establishment of such [international justice] mechanisms and their outcomes. In Iraq, for example, the coalition of civil society organizations is strongly advocating for accountability and reparations for victims of  Da’esh to induce changes in the country towards full respect and protection of human rights for all.”

On December 7th 2020 C4JR sent an Open Letter to UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide to draw her attention to importance of reparations for atrocity crimes committed during the Da’esh/ISIL conflict in Iraq. Ms. Wairimu Nderitu was also encouraged to highlight the link between the non-repetition of genocide and reparations in her upcoming work.

C4JR member organizations hereby warmly thank Special Adviser Wairimu Nderitu for pointing towards C4JR´s work as good practice.

C4JR also extends gratitude to the following international partners for supporting the open letter.

  • Ceasefire Centre for Civilian Rights
  • Fight for Humanity
  • Genocide Watch
  • Global Survivors Fund
  • Impunity Watch
  • Madre
  • Minority Rights Group International
